HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Irchester and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Irchester property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Irchester property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned that there could be asbestos boards around radiators concealed in the house. What is asbestos, can it be handled easily and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly silicate material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including pipe insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in paper lining.

All forms are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to move asbestos and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Irchester survey. They will note potential asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of bugs in the toilet - How do we investigate further?

Property in Irchester are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include use of insecticides.

RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your home surveyor.

Gas flame

Will a RICS surveyor check out the safety of the gas appliances?

A chartered surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the system. This means things like gas heaters at the home, as well as gas related gas fittings in the home e.g. chimney breasts. The Irchester chartered surveyor won't remove external fittings and will not run any tests whatsoever on the system or appliances. Gas is potentially dangerous and if there are any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.
